Roque Yolanda Fisher Sharpe Krystal Felicia Smalls Kimberly Anndrea Washington Kimalecia Leshay Weekes Natasha Reyna Wright ®fj£ §>tgntftcanc£ of ®t|c Academic iEace Observing the centuries-old convocation procedures, each Marshal in the Savannah State College Aca- demic Procession carries an official mace which is indicative of the power, dignity, and magisterium vested in the College. The mace is a club-shaped staff which originated in the Middle Ages as a weapon. Eventually, it gained a ceremonial character and is presently employed most often by legislative forums and academic enterprises. The official mace of Savannah State College was designed and made from mahogany wood by Dr. Ernest S. Brown, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering Technology. Dr. Lester B. Johnson, Jr. former Head of the Department of Engineering Technology, designed and built the Mace Stand. The College motto is "Lux Et Veritas" ("Light and Truth"). Acatomtc (Cnstumcs Modern academic dress, has evolved from a type of apparel prescribed by English Medieval Universities to distinguish their schools from the lay person in dress at a time when everybody wore robes or gowns. When American colleges and universities desired to adopt some suitable system of academic apparel a half century ago, it seemed best to agree on some definite system which all might follow. Accordingly, this attire has con- sisted of the cap, the gown, and the hood, the latter two now differing according to the degree the wearer has received. The modem cap, in academic dress, has the same design for all degrees: black and square-shaped with a tassel hanging from the center. However, the color of the tassel usually differentiates the field of study for which the degree was granted, the gold tassel being worn by doctors or by presidents of colleges and universities; but it may be added that the black tassel is correct for all degrees. The gown, unlike the cap, differs appreciably in design according to the degree conferred on the wearer. The gown for the bachelor's degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn closed. The gown for the master's degrees, worn open or closed, has an oblong sleeve, open at the wrist, like the others. The sleeve base hangs down in the traditional manner. The rear part of its oblong shape is square cut, and the front part has an arc cut away. The doctor's gown, worn open or closed, has long sleeves faced with velvet; three bars of velvet are midway the sleeves. The trimmings of the doctor's gown may be black or the color associated with the field of study The hood, while not an article of dress, is, however, the most distinctive feature of the academic attire. It is a black, crow-shaped badge or adornment with an oval opening and worn down the back. It enables one to quickly determine not only the degree held by the wearer but also the college or university from which he is graduated. The colors lining the hood and the size and the shape of the hood make this distinction. The bachelor's and master's hoods are three feet and three and a half feet in length, respectively; the doctor's hood is four feet in length and is made with a wide panel. Hoods may be worn for only those degrees actually held by the wearers. Members of the governing body of a college or university, and they only, whatever their degrees may be, are entitled to wear doctor's gowns (with black velvet), but their hoods may be only those of degrees actually held by the wearers or those especially prescribed for them by the institution. In some colleges and universities, it is customary for the president, chancellor, or chief officer to wear a costume similar to that worn by the head of a foreign university. The chief marshal may wear a specially designed costume approved by the institution. For all academic purposes, including trimmings of doctor's gowns, edging of hoods, and tassels of caps, the color associated with different subjects as prescribed by the revised American Intercollegiate Code is as follows: Music Pink Oratory (Speech) Silver Gray Philosophy Dark Blue Physical Education Sage Green Public Administration Peacock Blue Science Golden Yellow Social Work Citron Theology Scarlet Arts, Letters, Humanities White Business Drab Economics Copper Education Light Blue Law Purple Library Science Lemon At Savannah State College, the lining of the hood has an orange chevron on a blue background to represent school colors. A faculty member wears the color of his alma mater.
